"You don't have to worry about being special or normal compared to everyone else! It doesn't matter who it is. So as long as they think you're special, then you're special.” - Chitanda Eru (Hyouka)
When I first heard Curious, I sat and stared at my screen in a daze. The production, the melodies, vocals, harmonies, everything about it was entrancing, what I would consider genuine beauty in a song. I scrolled down to read the lyrics, and I saw just sitting at the bottom of the description ‘Inspired by Hyouka’.
For those of you who are unfamiliar with this inspiration that is associated with this song, allow me to inform you on why I asked Kozoro to remix this song, and the ideas I wanted to reinstate and make potentially more prominent about ‘Curious’. I’ll keep this as comprehensible as possible so you don’t have to know anything about the story of Hyouka.

I wanted to create an atmosphere that exhibited both characters personalities.
On the right of the image is Oreki. The first half of my remix is tended towards Oreki, for what I tried to audibly show was somewhat melancholic and crestfallen, but in a way that sounds like he has embraced these traits. Encapsulating darkness, and transmuting his capture into light.
The second half of the remix is tended towards Chitanda whom is on the left of the image. I thought so hard about how to sonically recreate what it would be like to be enveloped by happiness, euphoria, elation, and of course, curiosity. Enhancing the light around her and Oreki to become more radiant, more rhapsodic, more confusing, and more exhilarating.
Stay real everyone
